About the Chamber
Leading businesses, leading communities.
Create business development opportunities for our members and advocate for a strong and stable economic climate.
The roots of the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce can be traced back to 1922, when it was founded and incorporated as the Newark Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber evolved, expanded its territory and expanded its program base in the early 1960’s. By 1967, it was known as the Greater Newark Chamber of Commerce and serviced businesses as far east of Newark as Prices Corner.
Today, the Chamber has grown from about 300 members in 1979 to over 1,700 members. The Chamber is involved in government affairs, special events, providing emerging businesses with support and services, offering health and insurance benefits to our members, and overseeing a wide range of programs for businesses of all sizes. Armed with this dynamic business plan, staffed with dedicated employees, and driven by an active, involved membership, the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce strives to be the premier business organization in New Castle County.
